7. FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

7.1 Certain statements on the Platform may constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the safe harbour provisions of the US Private Securities Litigation Reform Act or similar applicable regulation. In some cases, these statements are identifiable by the use of forward-looking words such as “may,” “might,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “potential” or “continue,” and the negative of these terms and other comparable terminology. Such forward-looking statements which are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions about Kinesis, may include, but are not limited to, projections of future financial performance of relevant products based on our relevant strategies and anticipated trends in our business and industry, statements concerning Kinesis’ plans, objectives, expectations and intentions and other statements that are not historical or current facts.

Forward-looking statements are only predictions based on our current expectations about future events. They involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results, level of activity, or performance to differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements. Factors that lead to Kinesis’ performance to differ materially from current expectations include, but are not limited to: implementation of strategic initiatives, economic, political and market conditions and fluctuations, government and industry regulation, interest rate risk and market competition.

These risks and uncertainties are not exhaustive and forward-looking statements are based on a number of assumptions that are subject to change. We operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks and uncertainties emerge from time to time, and it is not possible to predict all risks and uncertainties, nor can we assess the impact that these factors will have on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements.

Our inclusion of such projections in any report or document should not be regarded as a representation that the projections will prove to be correct. We do not assume responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of any of these forward-looking statements. You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. We are under no duty to update any of these forward-looking statements after the date of any report to conform our prior statements to actual results or revised expectations and we do not intend to do so.

6.5.1.1.1. Agree on a date for the requested deposit of Bullion within the time frame prescribed in the QAF. Where said notice does not provide the requisite amount of time, the delivery shall be processed on the following Delivery Date where possible, unless otherwise agreed by the Parties;

6.5.1.1.2. verify that the Bullion to be deposited with Kinesis is in a Prescribed Form and will be deposited to Kinesis’s Vaulting Account at your expense and risk; and

6.5.1.1.3. establish, to the best of its reasonable knowledge, that the facilitation of storage of Bullion for you is legal insofar as the movement of the Bullion would not breach any applicable law, regulation, court order or otherwise.

6.5.1.2. Where a deposit is made pursuant to the Clause 6, said deposit may take up to forty-eight (48) hours to be credited to you. Until such time as the Bullion is credited to the Kinesis Vaulting Account, you shall not be permitted to mint the deposited Bullion into Kinesis Currency.

6.6. Fees.

6.6.1. ABX may charge a Deposit Fee for any Bullion deposited to each ABX Vault.

6.7. Emission.

6.7.1. Once the deposited Bullion has been credited to the Kinesis Vaulting Account Kinesis will cause an equivalent amount of Kinesis Currency to be emitted on behalf of the KCX Member in number equal to the weight of Bullion deposited (e.g. 1kg of Gold Bullion for each 1000 KAUs purchased) and will immediately emit the equivalent Kinesis Currency to your nominated Kinesis Address.

6.7.2. From time to time Kinesis may accept Bullion of non-standard fineness prescribed in the Kinesis product specification criteria. However, the equivalent Kinesis Currency emitted will be in proportion to its fineness compared against the standard fineness specified in the Kinesis product specification (eg. a 1g Gold Coin of fineness 995.0 will be subject to an emission of KAU no greater than 0.995 KAU).

6.7.3. Where Kinesis Currencies are emitted in accordance with Clause 6.7.2, the following additional terms apply:

6.7.3.1. Bullion subject to clause 6.7.2 may be recorded into a deposit manifest, inserted into numbered tubes, and stored in number boxes within the ABX cage at the participating vaulting location with identifying information of the entity that completed the EPD, for the benefit of Kinesis.

Default means at any time after the Kinesis Currency has been emitted to you, on the 1st day of any following month, you fail to maintain a balance of Kinesis Currencies within your KMS Account of at least 2/3rds of the Kinesis Currencies emitted to you or fail to hold sufficient balance to pay the segregation maintenance fee.

6.7.3.4.2. If you are in Default because of failure to maintain 2/3rds balance of the Kinesis Currencies emitted to you, you must within 30 days increase your KMS Account balance with sufficient Kinesis Currencies to maintain the 2/3rds balance of the Kinesis Currencies emitted to you.

6.7.3.4.3. If you are in Default because of failure to pay the segregation maintenance fee, you must within 7 days increase your KMS balance to allow an amount equal to the monthly segregation fee to be deducted by Kinesis. If within 7 days you do not increase your KMS balance sufficiently to allow payment of the monthly segregation fee, Kinesis may at its sole discretion waive your rights under clause 6.7.3.7 and any remaining balance subject to the initial emission under clause 6.7.2 treated as a standard emission under clause 6.7.1.

6.7.3.5. If you are unable to satisfy clause 6.7.3.4.1., you acknowledge and agree that Kinesis has the right to deal with the subject Bullion such that any remaining Bullion or substituted Bullion shall represent at most 2/3rds of the initial Kinesis Currencies emitted to you by way of EPD. For the avoidance of doubt, the remaining Bullion or substituted Bullion will represent the Kinesis Currencies subject to clause 6.7.2 for any following months.

6.7.3.6. If you fail to hold the sufficient Kinesis Currencies to maintain 2/3rds balance of the Kinesis Currencies emitted to you under clause 6.7.2 at least four (4) times in any six (6) month rolling period, you forfeit any rights to the Bullion subject to clause 6.7.2 and at which time the Bullion becomes the legal property of Kinesis.

6.7.3.7 At any time after emission of Kinesis Currencies subject to clause 6.7.2, you may complete the KCX Redemption Form to redeem the specific Bullion that was subject to EPD at the time. Conditional upon the receipt by Kinesis of sufficient Kinesis Currencies and any fees associated with the redemption, Kinesis shall deliver to you the subject Bullion.

6.7.4. You acknowledge and agrees that Kinesis is not able to reverse any emission of Kinesis Currency to a Kinesis Address and will not have any responsibility or liability for Kinesis Currency sent to an address that is incorrect, improperly formatted, erroneous, intended for a different type of digital token or where it has been compromised by a party other than you.

6.8. Backing of Kinesis Currency.

Kinesis cannot guarantee the successful recovery of assets and Kinesis cannot recover assets that have been deposited into an address that is not owned, accessible, or controlled by Kinesis.

Kinesis may charge the requester an asset recovery fee, which will only be charged if asset recovery is successful. The standard asset recovery fee is 2 KAU (or if applicable, the equivalent value in any other currency listed on the Platform as directed by Kinesis) per successful asset recovery attempt. Where Kinesis believes that significant resources may be expended to recover a particular asset, Kinesis may in writing inform the customer of a recovery fee that differs from the standard asset recovery fee.

Kinesis will not perform the recovery until the customer has consented to the recovery and fees in writing. The requester is to pay any network/transaction fees associated with the attempted asset recovery in addition to the asset recovery fee, which Kinesis will not return to the requester regardless of the success or failure of the asset recovery attempt. The requester is also to pay for any other fees associated with the attempted asset recovery, which Kinesis will not return to the requester regardless of the success or failure of the asset recovery attempt. Kinesis may refuse to recover assets at any time and at the sole discretion of Kinesis.

Kinesis may agree to attempt to recover assets under the following circumstances:

Kinesis may investigate the possibility of recovering assets in other deposit scenarios.

3. If asset recovery is successful, Kinesis can only return the asset to the sender’s originating address. Where applicable the assets returned will be less the fee charged for the successful recovery of the asset or the user will need to deposit the appropriate fee in the nominated currency by Kinesis to an address nominated by Kinesis prior to the recovery process beginning.

4. If a user wishes to pay the recovery fee in an alternative asset other than the asset being recovered, terms may be negotiated with Kinesis on a case by case basis and Kinesis will only engage in a recovery attempt once the agreed fee is deposited into an address specified by Kinesis. In the event of an unsuccessful recovery under such an agreement, Kinesis will return the asset recovery fee, less any network/ transaction fee incurred to initiate the return of the recovery fee.

5. Asset recovery may take up to 45 days from the start date of the agreed asset recovery attempt.

6. This policy does not guarantee the success of any asset recovery attempt. To request an asset recovery attempt or to discuss further, please contact us at support@kinesis.money.
